Should seam and furrow with the strife,
The star that leaps and kindles now
Might light my path of life.

Were busy with his dreams;
Loud rang their wild, unearthly shrieks,
Wide yawned their mortal seams.

And seweth at the seam so fair,

Laid softly on the furrowed hill,
It hides the broken seams below,
And leaves the summit brighter still.

In science:

The isometry-property is necessary so that the metric continues to be smooth across the seam.
Close encounters of black holes
At the bold line the free energy has a discontinuous derivative in both variables, and randomness in either J or µ will eliminate this first order transition, rounding the seam in F (T, µ, 0).
On Spin Systems with Quenched Randomness: Classical and Quantum
To avoid destroying the first order transition we have to add randomness to J and µ in a correlated manner, so as to make it ‘tangential’ to the seam, i.e., in the form done in (1.2) in the σ -variables.
On Spin Systems with Quenched Randomness: Classical and Quantum
If on the contrary we add noise only to the x → (cid:80)(λ + ηx )σ (1) letting λ (cid:80) σ (1) even terms, this is tangential to the “seams” and doesn’t destroy the first order transition.

The bilayer may end at a free edge, or three bilayers meet on one line (seams), as shown in fig. 31.
Amphiphilic Membranes
This is not possible if the membrane possesses free edges or seams.
Amphiphilic Membranes
Summing up these considerations, we obtain the phase diagram in the (τ, κ)-plane, assuming a large value of the bending rigidity κ, and neglecting for the time being the possible occurrence of free edges and seams, and their effects.
Amphiphilic Membranes
